Dusk Cropped w_Sky-compressed It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what makes Leslieville one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods. Is it the hip boutiques? Bounty of brunch spots? Homey cafés? Ample green spaces? If you’re longing for the east end lifestyle, now’s your chance to settle in. 875 Queen East, a boutique condominium by Harhay Developments, is launching in June.

The seven-storey building features an Empire-style heritage brick façade. Its loft-inspired residences will boast expansive balconies and terraces, with views of Jimmie Simpson Park and the bustling street below. Interiors will be characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows, pre-finished engineered wood floors, and exposed concrete ceilings, columns and feature walls.

The stylish, modern Scavolini kitchens will include custom designed cabinetry, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances with a gas range and the buyer’s choice of backsplash tiles from builder’s samples (as per plan). Bathrooms will be outfitted with stone vanity tops, rain style shower heads, deep soaker bathtubs and porcelain tile flooring. Sliding doors open onto balconies and expansive terraces. Plus, all terraces will be equipped with gas BBQ connections (as per plan).

875 terrace 875 Queen East is surrounded by shopping, dining and transit options. Lady Marmelade, located just across the street, continuously ranks as the best brunch in Toronto. Nearby Arts Market sells goods from over 120 artists, designers and creative vendors. Boxcar Social offers a rotating list of coffees, top-notch wines, craft beers and whisky, as well as mouthwatering charcuterie.

It’s easy to stay active when Jimmie Simpson Park is your backyard. The 2.6 hectare facility features a ball diamond, multipurpose sports field, lit hockey rink, two lit tennis courts, basketball courts, a wading pool and a children’s playground. The adjacent Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre houses an artificial ice rink, swimming pool, gymnasium and skateboard area.

The 301 and 501 streetcar lines travers Queen Street, as do the 502 and 503 bus routes. Commuting to downtown takes less than 25 minutes, and at the end of the day you’ll be happy to escape to Toronto’s quiet east end.
